Column: Take big bites

I am inspired by only a few well-known figures, but you would be wrong in assuming that I am most inspired by Giada De Laurentiis or Julia Child.

Column: Learning from Dora

  When I was a little girl, I grew up in Whiting, Ind., a small town on the northwestern-most point of the state. My parents moved there after getting married but had problems fitting in and being accepted by the neighbors and townspeople for reasons none of us really understand.

Column: Pardon yourself from pizza

I have a terrible confession to share with all of you: I used to really hate pizza. Part of this stems from moving at a younger age and relying on the local pizza joint in town for a few months. I got really sick of pizza really quickly.

Column: Strawberry frosting forever

Strawberries. If I could get away with typing a smiley face throughout this column I would, because I can only smile when I think about strawberries.

Column: Get heated up

Within my dad’s personal office, there is a book. Typically it stands tall and upright alongside our cookbooks in our bookshelves in the dining room, but this past weekend it lay on his desk, amidst work notes and papers. It is a chili cookbook, and I absolutely adore it.

Column: A jones for Julie and Julia

There are two large posters hanging in my room: one of Bob Dylan that everyone has from the poster sale and a movie poster of “Being Julia.” But my other, smaller posters seem to overwhelm the two largest.

Column: Cuisine, careers and questions

What does it mean to be a food journalist?  I’ve been asking myself this question frequently as of late because I have hit my junior-year rut.

Column: Beefing up on burgers

I love burgers probably more than I should. What’s not to like?So much food is related in some degree to the hamburger. It’s essentially become an American phenomenon. After all, what’s more American than the hamburger?

Column: Ode to steak

I have a slightly gross story to share with you. Don’t worry, it’s actually relevant to my column this week.

Old habits, new year

As it is the new year, ’tis the season for everyone to make New Year’s resolutions. I bet you can guess where I’m going with this — I’m going to talk about the typical resolution to lose weight.
